Some more challenging light conditions. I used a 3-stop soft Graduated Neutral Density filter on the top row, then none on the bottom. Used HDR in the merge process and then still a lot of work in PS to get here.
Very moody image. It looks like there's a sharpening halo above the mountains or it is the HDR didn't quite catch the edges cleanly?
I still haven't figured out how to work the HDR. I shot multiple exposures but nothing seemed to happen other than a major major blowout in every sense of the word when I clicked the HDRI setting. do I need to click the layer button?
